Major Progress Underway Advancing I-4 Moving Florida Forward Projects to Construction

I-4 Construction | I-4 Exit Guide

As part of preparing for the construction of the Moving Florida Forward projects along the Interstate 4 (I-4) corridor in northern Polk, Osceola, and southern Orange Counties, the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) recently held an Industry Forum for the construction and engineering industries.

Hosting this forum moves these projects one step closer to delivering these projects to the local communities. Interested industry partners were given a firsthand look at technical details of these projects and information on the opportunities available to be involved in the construction of these upcoming projects. This forum included a presentation on the program scope, the individual projects, project features, procurement timelines, and procurement processes.

Multiple I-4 Congestion Relief Projects

The series of projects part of this program and featured at the Industry Forum were from west of U.S. 27 in Polk County to east of State Road (S.R.) 536 in Orange County. Project plans part of this program include a major overhaul to I-4 and also include new tolled Express Lanes in the median of I-4 and the development of the Poinciana Connector.

These major congestion relief projects have been advanced 10-15 years sooner thanks to the bold vision of Governor DeSantis and the support of the Florida Legislature who prioritized funding for these projects as part of the historic Moving Florida Forward Infrastructure Initiative. With growing commuter, tourist, and freight traffic along I-4 in this area the interstate is in great need of addressing capacity and operations upgrades to improve mobility through the area, increase safety, enhance the quality of life for the community, and ensure the resiliency of our transportation system for the future.

Current I-4 Projects Underway

The plans for these I-4 projects will connect with the construction already underway at the S.R. 535 interchange, the new Daryl Carter Parkway Interchange, the Sand Lake Road Interchange, and the completed I-4 Ultimate Improvements through downtown Orlando. Once completed, this series of projects and the ones currently underway not only provide regional congestion relief, but also modernizes outdated infrastructure and provides additional travel choices on this critical interstate corridor.

In addition to the recently held Industry Forum, as part of FDOT’s robust outreach program for projects, the Department plans to also share information and meet with community partners and other stakeholders along these project corridors.
